Activision and Bungie have released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming game Destiny, taking players on a trip to Earth's giant orb in the sky, the Moon.
While we may not have yet found life on the Moon, according to Destiny such a thing is there. Host to the one of four enemies in the game, players will be able to venture into space as they try to battle it out against these mysterious Hive creatures and hopefully save Earth in the process.
"We have no doubt Destiny is not only a great action game but also the next great entertainment property," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "That means we're putting all our creative support, and all our expertise in creating blockbuster franchises, into a colossal Destiny Beta that we believe will set a new bar for the next generation of games. Fans have a lot to look forward to in 2014."
"Destiny is the most ambitious game we have ever made, and it's our chance to transform the way you experience a new Bungie universe," said Harold Ryan, Bungie president. "From day one Destiny has been an incredibly bold vision that Activision shares with Bungie. Destiny is a massive universe that is populated by the players, and for that reason we need fans to get their hands on the game, fans all around the world. We can't wait!"
Alongside the new gameplay trailer Bungie has also revealed further details on the upcoming beta process, currently limited to those who pre-order the game on any of the supported platforms.
